Internet's Dr Evil Arrested At 'Bond Villain Lair' In New Zealand

Anthony Bond at the British newspaper the Daily Mail reports on the police takedown of Kim Dotcom, a suspect in the scheme, at his "Bond villain lair" in New Zealand.

It sounds like something more reminiscent of a James Bond film than real life.

When police officers attempted to arrest the man accused of being one of the world's biggest internet pirates at his multi-million pound mansion, things were a bit trickier than they might have expected.

Instead of giving himself up easily, Kim Dotcom refused to let the police in, activated a number of locking mechanisms in his sprawling home and then hid in a safe room.

The determined police officers had to cut their way through to gain access and then found Mr Dotcom hiding near a gun.
Fortunately, thanks to dozens of police officers, backed by helicopters, they managed to detain the 38-year-old without anyone coming to harm.

Mr Dotcom, a German national, was one of four men arrested on Friday as part of an investigation of the website.
